Isuzu D-Max doubles up at 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show

XTR and AT35 Safir versions of Isuzu D-Max pickup revealed at the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show

Isuzu has used the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham to display a pair of new Isuzu D-Max pickups, the XTR and the AT35 Safir. Both are available to order now.

Starting with the D-Max XTR, this version of Isuzu's durable pick-up is a new model that's designed to slot in the range between the Blade, the top-spec version of the standard truck, and the Arctic Trucks AT35 off-road special. The XTR gets a unique front end design and more black plastic cladding than the standard D-Max, plus black wheels and plastic wheelarch extensions.

Best pick-ups to buy 

Under the skin, the ride height has been raised by 250mm courtesy of a new suspension system from Australian specialist Pedders. This improves the truck's off-road ability, as well as claiming to give the XTR a smoother ride than the standard truck, while vented disc brakes and new pads offer improved stopping performance.

There are special 17-inch black alloy off-road wheels at each corner, while Pirelli Scorpion off-road tyres have been chosen to complement the revised suspension.

Up front, the black cladding doubles as a bumper guard and bonnet protector, while the wheelarch cladding features lime green highlights that are designed to help the XTR to stand out. At the back, a tailgate spoiler and bumper guard, both in matt black, have been added, while the colour options are white, silver, grey or black. To contrast this, you'll find lime green detailing on the brakes and suspension, and there are green highlights in the cabin, too.

Heated sports seats with leather and suede-effect upholstery are included, plus there's a sports steering wheel, leather door panels and more green stitching within. The D-Max XTR is available to order now, priced from £33,999.

The D-Max AT35 Safir is a far simpler proposition. Essentially it's a new colour scheme and spec upgrade for the Arctic Trucks converted D-Max. The special edition is limited to just 10 examples, and all cars get a chrome sports bar in the bed and a Mountain Top roller cover. There are Lazer Lights high-intensity LED spotlights mounted on the sports bar, while another pair of Lazer Lights are added to the grille.

Inside, the leather seats feature blue stitching, while there's a new infotainment head unit thrown in with nine speakers, a subwoofer and HDMI port. A front camera is also included to cover the area ahead of the truck obscured by its raised rie height.

The standard AT35 is pricey, but the Safir bumps that up further with a CV price of £45,000.
